CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC had planned to talk about trust in regard to leadership but was moved by Tomb Raider’s COT from the previous day so called an audible.

Death is now.  The choice is here.  Lay your life down.  Your heartbeats cannot be hoarded. Your reservoir of breaths is draining away.  You have hands, blister them while you can.  You have bones, make them strain-they can carry nothing in the grave. You have lungs, let them spill with laughter.  With an average life expectancy of 78.2 years in the U.S., I have around 250,000 conscious hours remaining to me in which I could be smiling or scowling, rejoicing in my life, in this race, in this story, or moaning and complaining about my troubles.  I can be giving my fingers, my back, my mind, my words, my breaths, to my wife and my children and my neighbors, or I can grasp after the vapor and the vanity for myself, dragging my feet, afraid to die and therefore afraid to live.  And, like Adam, I will still die in the end.  

Living is the same thing as dying.  Living well is the same thing as dying for others.”

excerpt from ‘Death by Living‘  N.D. Wilson

MOLESKIN:
Flobee is a funny sneezer.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Words of wisdom from respected mentor of YHC, “Pride without humility is nothing but arrogance.” Both qualities are important when leading others. Take pride in what you do and in the way you lead and influence others but remember that the success of a good leader is carried on the backs of those he leads. This should lead to humility and gratefulness.

MOLESKIN:
The Streak renamed “pickle pounders” to “pickle relish”. YHC believes this was due to the horrible effect said exercise was having on his body. As usual, no eye contact was made with the ground or other PAX.

Heads up: Morglians will openly mock you for executing COT, COR/NOR out of order. make sure you get that down pat before you next Morg Q.

Sleep Number may have been the owner of the creeper van.

“Everybody wants to be on the mountaintop, but if you’ll remember, mountaintops are rocky and cold. There is no growth on the top of a mountain. Sure, the view is great, but what are views for? A view just gives us a glimpse of our next destination-our next target. But to hit that target, we must come off the mountain, go through the valley, and begin to climb the next slope. It is in the valley that we slog through lush grass and rich soil, learning and becoming what enables us to summit life’s next peak.”

Side jacks and sit-thru’s are a difficult exercise to do and teach.

But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself. Now God had brought Daniel into favor and tender love with the prince of the eunuchs. Daniel 1:8,9.

“Such a faith that expresses itself so courageously, freely, and humbly always obtains from God the reward of faith. God gave Daniel grace and mercy. God gave Daniel grace and mercy. Daniel had believed the words of Deuteronomy 8:3, “Man doth not live by bread only.” Daniel believed the God of his fathers. -Commentary on Daniel by Harry BultemaMOLESKIN:
